  • This was a magical place for my wife and I. We were married here and visited each year and attended the Halloween fest"Screamings Run". I'd love to see it reopen. A great loss...  more »
  • Due to an unfortunate fire the gardens are now closed. Not sure when or if they ever will reopen. This is a great loss to the Cape May County community.  more »
  • Very pretty walk looking at wildflowers and nature. A little pricy for entry fee. Nice sunny day watching flowers bloom what more can one ask for?  more »

  • Looks like it is now closed. Sign is no longer hanging up and gate was closed.
  • Neat little trail, but needs a lot of work. I remember coming here as a kid and it seems a bit run down since then.
  • Not a grand formal garden, but a well layed out walk through the woods with small surprises around each turn. Peaceful and lovely.
  • Leaming's Run gardens A lovely little family owned and operated garden, on a historic property. Thomas Leaming built a home for his wife (Hannah, a great grand daughter of of John and Elizabeth Howland of the Mayflower) in 1706. They raised their 7 children there. The house still stands on the property and has been continuously occupied for 309 years, over 200 of them in the Leaming family. The property was bought in the 1970's by the Jack Aprill and his wife who raised their 4 sons in the Thomas Leaming house and slowly turned the heavily wooded land into acres of garden, ponds nature preserve and humming bird haven. The lovely garden is now maintained, almost singlehandedly by Jack"s charming daughter in law, Missy, who discovered years after living and working there, that she is a direct descendent of Thomas and Hannah Leaming!
